The calculated valuation for the asset is likely to have been to have been posted to retained earnings of the period ending 30 June 2009.With the building, it is still held by the group. The initial adjustment entry is similar to the one of the acquisition date. An accumulated depreciation of \$ 20,000[\$ 75,000- \$ 55,000] is scrapped-off and the building reduced from \$ 75,000 to a fair value reflecting \$ 57,000, which translates to \$ 18,000.

The \$ 2,000 difference is shared between deferred tax liability (30%) and business valuation reserve (70 %). The entry is reflected continuously for the period the asset is held by the Company at hand. This procedure is applied for plant which has an accumulated depreciation of \$ 78,000[being \$ 260,000- \$ 182,000] and the cost is reduced to \$ 190,000 which is deduced from \$ 260,000,[ \$ 260,000- \$ 190,000], a figure of \$ 70,000. The difference between \$ 78,000 and \$ 70,000, \$ 8,000 is shared between deferred tax liability (30 %) and business combination valuation reserve (70 %).

For delivery truck, \$ [90,000-36,000] = \$54,000, [\$ 90,000- \$ 38,000] = \$ 52,000. The difference, \$ 2,000 being \$ [54,000-52,000] is apportioned between deferred tax liability (30 %) and business combination reserve entry (70 %). For Office Furniture, the difference results to a zero amount. There will be no need to account for delivery truck since it was already sold before the reporting took place. In this valuation entry though, the plant is depreciated on a straight line basis for a 5 year period.

The acquisition date was 1 July 2008 and the reporting date is 30 June 2011. This translates to a 3 year period between the two aforementioned dates. The BCVR entry for plant needs to reflect relevant adjustments for the period under consideration and 2 year prior financial period depreciation. The adjustment to the plant is valued at \$ 8,000. Using a 20 % depreciation rate [20 % * \$ 8,000] we derive the depreciation per annum to be \$ 1,600, for Buildings, the adjustment to it is valued at \$ 2,000.

Taking the depreciation rate at 20 %, we deduce that an amount of \$ 4, 00 per annum [20 % * 2000] is termed adjustable. At this point, it is notably clear that the sitting period depreciation is altered at the depreciation expense while for the prior two periods, it is expected that the depreciation affect the retained earnings. The total depreciation amount is altered against the resultant accumulated depreciation amount. The amount of deferred tax liability= adjustment to accumulated depreciation multiplied by tax rate, in this assignment it is: \$, 4, 800 for plant and \$ 1,200 for building, deriving, \$ 4,800 * 30 % = \$ 1,440 for plant and \$ 1,200 * 30 % = \$360 for buildings.
